    Hello again..... Sorry I go away for so long sometime. I just get distracted with the other truck / car. The 3 doesn't get the loving or attention any more....

    While I was waiting on a few parts (replaced all the rotors, pads, and calipers) I pulled the brush guard, grill, and hood louver and painted them with Rustoleum bed line. I sanded the plastic parts then applied rustoleum plastic primer, a few coats of flat black paint, then a few coats of bedliner. Not perfect, but OK. The bedliner cans were not spraying very well, or at least some cans would, some would not, or they would stop performing well halfway through the can.

    On a plus side... My younger brother picked up a H3T Alpha last weekend. So I will be helping him work on that.

    Re did the winch mount, swapped in an 09 Cast Front with elocker, and what started as a transmission rebuild.... escalated... just little bit...
    I bet there is a ton of stuff I have done and not updated.... may be I will be able to keep this up...? who knows...
    Going to need to fix the rockers too. I found some hidden dents under there too from the 1 few trips we took, before rock rails.

    I hate to tell you this, but those are holes, not dents. And now you have me terrified of what I might find if I ever get around to pulling my rocker covers off...

    Oh, yeah those holes are hug now. 3/4 the length of the rocker.... but there are some big dents in there too, lol. That plastic held up pretty darn well.
    The rockers were full of dried dirt and mud, so there are enough holes in the body (from the factory) that they can fill up, but not really drain, and there is no good way to get in there and wash it out....

    Hopefully picking up a new motor and transmission tomorrow. Stay tuned for more silliness.

    Swung out and picked up the replacement motor and transmission for the truck. We will see if I know what I am doing....
    Besides the lack of power from the I5, it was just the right time to finally pull the band-aid and sway.
    4L60 Transmission was toast, needed a rebuild
    Exhaust manifold had a nice crack in it.
    Radiator was pretty much toast
    Front seal leaking oil
    Steering rack finally died
    And above - you see how the rockers need to be patched....

    This is a 6.2L motor with a 6L80 transmission. I don't plan on putting silly power through it, but will be swapping the camshaft and removing AFM / DoD. I will probably study oil pan options to see how thin I can go, hoping for a front axle upgrade in the future. I also plan on using electric fans on the radiator, also using an external trans cooler. There is a small (and by small I mean large) list of other things I still want / need to do. After all, we have owned this truck since 2006 and it has seen too many Michigan winters.


    Once I start putting the motor in the truck... I am sure I will be screaming HEEEELP plenty of times.

    As of now, yes with a rebuild. Considering a mechanical T-Case, but that will be a later update. I will be rebuilding the T-case before I put it back in, as it has not been serviced (besides fluid) since the factory.
